The computer calls him kind and he yells at it to silence.
He says that he will challenge and defeat Deep Blue in a chess match. He tells the crowd to sit back in silence and learn.

He bets Sandow that he can beat Deep Blue in one move.
Sandow reminds him he is on TV and tells him not to embarrass himself. Sheamus says if Sandow is too scared to let him try just to say so. Sandow says it's his reputation. Sheamus starts looking at the screen and Sandow says it's like watching an orangutan try to solve a crossword puzzle. Sheamus feigns like he is making calculations and then Brogue Kicks the computer.

Then, a recap of Ryback's actions in the past couple of weeks is shown. Next, Kaitlyn and Natalya are backstage. Kaitlyn says she is going to meet her admirer on RAW. Natalya says it might be too big a stage to meet him. Kaitlyn asks why can't she be happy for her and Natalya says she thinks it should be in private. She says he might be a creep.
